ActiveRecord: Attribute Setter for belongs_to relation attr


#1

Hi,

I m trying to link into the process of setting an belongs_to attribute
in my model. Unfortunetly, it does not seem to be as easy as for
“normal” attributes.

I ve tried the following:
class Treatment < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :drug

def drug=(new_value)
'my stuff
super new_value
end

However, that does not work. Ive also tried self[:drug] = new_value…
However, that is also not working.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance.
